The End of October

We have been so busy in the last couple of weeks. That is not the norm for us but we are enjoying it nonetheless.
At the end of October we took Ian to the NC State Fair for the first time. Buck was able to change work around for the day so he came with us. We had basically counted on not riding anything but Ian surprised us by asking to go through the funhouse and on the ferris wheel. It was a cool moment to be up in the air on a glorious day with my little family.

He and I shared a big turkey leg and corn, we looked at cows and various poultry, and Ian rode a real pony. Ian's favorite thing at the fair though was the cow robot. There was a plush cow who was riding on a mini John Deere tractor. The cow could talk and he could hear us talk too! Ian spent a long time just watching the cow from the sidelines. After a while he felt comfortable enough to approach the cow. He talked to the cow a bit and gave it a pat on the head before running off.

It's been a while

I almost forgot I had a blog. I haven't written in over a year now. Ian is almost 2 and a half. He is lots of fun and very chatty. Some of his favorite things now are: cars and trucks, Star Wars "guys" (action figures), his supey Superman cape, drawing, dancing, singing, trains, swordfighting with Dad and hanging out with friends and family.

We went to Virginia earlier this month. We all really enjoyed visiting Jamestown and Busch Gardens. We were pretty tired by the time we got to Williamsburg on the last day so we left early.

Ian is always learning new stuff and testing out new theories. In this picture he was plugging his ears while humming and talking to hear the difference in sound. We love to paint together, he enjoys sorting silverware and listening to music. He is cool.
